Swiss police are debating whether to move forward with legal action against Martina Hingis after questioning the former tennis star last week in the September beating of her estranged husband.

Hingis, 33, her mother Melanie Molitor, and her mother's boyfriend Mario Widmer were all interviewed at Schwyz canton police headquarters, police spokesman Florian Grossmann told The Associated Press Wednesday.

The trio is accused of attacking Thibault Hutin, a French equestrian athlete, Sept. 23 at his home in Feusisberg. He told officers that Hingis and Molitor hit him while Widmer struck him in the head with a DVD player.

Hutin also claims that Hingis once attempted to dismantle his car, stole his credit cards, and cheated on him twice since they were married in 2010. The couple is in the process of getting a divorce.

Grossmann said the police department is still deciding whether it will pursue legal action against Hingis, Molitor, and Widmer, and added that there is no timetable for a decision.

Hingis, an International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee, won five Grand Slam singles and nine Grand Slam doubles titles over the course of her career. She announced her retirement in 2007, but has launched many comebacks since. She and Lindsay Davenport won the Ladies' Invitation Doubles for the third year in a row at Wimbledon 2013.
